Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Key Message: University Calculus: Alternate Edition answers the demand for a more streamlined, less expensive version of the highly acclaimed Thomas' Calculus, Eleventh Edition.  The text retains the same quality and quantity of exercises as the eleventh edition while using a faster-paced presentation. This text focuses on the thinking behind calculus and uses the same precise, accurate exposition for which the Thomas series is well known. The elegant art program helps today’s readers visualize important concepts.

Key Topics: Functions; Limits and Continuity; Differentiation; Applications of Derivatives; Integration; Applications of Definite Integrals; Transcendental Functions; Techniques of Integration; Infinite Sequences and Series; Polar Coordinates and Conics; Vectors and the Geometry of Space; Vector-Valued Functions and Motion in Space; Partial Derivatives; Multiple Integrals; Integration in Vector Fields; First-Order Differential Equations; Second-Order Differential Equations

Market: For all readers interested in Calculus.

Synopsis:

Calculus hasn't changed, but your students have. Many of today's students have seen calculus before at the high school level. However, professors report nationwide that students come into their calculus courses with weak backgrounds in algebra and trigonometry, two areas of knowledge vital to the mastery of calculus. University Calculus: Alternate Edition responds to the needs of today's students by developing their conceptual understanding while maintaining a rigor appropriate to the calculus course. The Alternate Edition is the perfect alternative for instructors who want the same quality and quantity of exercises as Thomas' Calculus, Media Upgrade, Eleventh Edition but prefer a faster-paced presentation. University Calculus: Alternate Edition is now available with an enhanced MyMathLab course--the ultimate homework, tutorial and study solution for today's students. The enhanced MyMathLab course includes a rich and flexible set of course materials and features innovative Java Applets, Group Projects, and new MathXL(R) exercises. This text is also available with WebAssign(R) and WeBWorK(R).

About the Author

Joel Hass received his PhD from the University of California—Berkeley. He is currently a professor of mathematics at the University of California—Davis. He has coauthored six widely used calculus texts as well as two calculus study guides. He is currently on the editorial board of Geometriae Dedicata and Media-Enhanced Mathematics. He has been a member of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton University and of the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, and he was a Sloan Research Fellow. Hass’s current areas of research include the geometry of proteins, three dimensional manifolds, applied math, and computational complexity. In his free time, Hass enjoys kayaking.

 

Maurice D. Weir holds a DA and MS from Carnegie-Mellon University and received his BS at Whitman College. He is a Professor Emeritus of the Department of Applied Mathematics at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. Weir enjoys teaching Mathematical Modeling and Differential Equations. His current areas of research include modeling and simulation as well as mathematics education. Weir has been awarded the Outstanding Civilian Service Medal, the Superior Civilian Service Award, and the Schieffelin Award for Excellence in Teaching. He has coauthored eight books, including the University Calculus series and the twelfth edition of Thomas’ Calculus.

  George B. Thomas, Jr. (late) of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, was a professor of mathematics for thirty-eight years; he served as the executive officer of the department for ten years and as graduate registration officer for five years. Thomas held a spot on the board of governors of the Mathematical Association of America and on the executive committee of the mathematics division of the American Society for Engineering Education. His book, Calculus and Analytic Geometry, was first published in 1951 and has since gone through multiple revisions. The text is now in its twelfth edition and continues to guide students through their calculus courses. He also co-authored monographs on mathematics, including the text Probability and Statistics.
